Abstract

Anorexia nervosa has the highest mortality of any psychiatric illness. Yet, these patients are often young and have many productive years yet to live. Weight restoration and nutritional rehabilitation, along with psychotherapy, are at the core of a successful treatment plan along with avoiding medical complications during the early periods of refeeding. This article is generated from an extensive literature search including Pubmed and Embase (1990 to 2015), of English-language manuscripts that addressed this topical area. This paper provides multidisciplinary expertise from the vantage points of a dietitian, psychotherapist and internal medicine physician to help with the treatment of a patient with anorexia nervosa in order to effectuate a successful treatment outcome.
